Archaeology journal is a journal for the Archaeology skill. It is provided to you during the tutorial and has a overview of Archaeology achievements completion, active relic powers, research, collection log for artefacts, mysteries, and special research.
It also provides an unlimited number of teleports to the Archaeology Guild, which is the third-fastest teleport to a bank in free-to-play, roughly tied with ring of kinship. Running to the bank north of the Mysterious monolith is marginally faster than the one in the Exam Centre. Archaeology journal also has the slight advantage of being equipped in less valuable (in f2p) pocket slot, freeing the ring slot for other useful rings like explorer's ring 4. War's Retreat Teleport is the fastest, but requires Combat level 60 and 10 boss kills to unlock. Clan vexillum is second fastest, but it requires being in a clan and is equipped in the weapon slot.
It is possible to put the journal on your action bar and bind a key to it. Since the teleport option is the first option on the journal, pressing the key will activate it without delay. This teleport can be used to escape from combat, however, like most other teleports, it only works in the Wilderness up to level 20.
It can also be used to access the Archaeology Restoration Log and Collector Information interfaces by selecting the "information" option.
If lost, it can be reclaimed upstairs in the Archaeology Guild, on the east desk. The desk has a "Study Desk" option, but you must click directly on the red journal at the centre of the desk and click the "Take Journal" option. Multiple Archaeology journals can be obtained.
